This summer, the project steering committee toured the site to see the current stage of construction. The steering committee is made up of co-op members, CHF Canada, and development consultants, New Commons.

Construction is scheduled for completion by early spring, 2024.

This is an exciting example of how co-ops are expanding to welcome new members, with support from federal and municipal government partners!
